    Hi Chris, the issue with the subdued “augmented” crowd noise may be a beIN sound mix issue and not La Liga itself. Recall when they had Serie A the noise was often lower than what the same match would have on RAI. Didn’t notice a difference when they used world feed over their in house commentary.

    To be fair to beIN, feel the same about Serie A matches on TV or Mark and Matteo for an ESPN+ match.

      I have made it clear that I do not like the piped in crowd noise. I will admit that Bundesliga’s crowd noise is a lot better than K-League’s noise. I did not mind La Liga’s, with it being subdued it did not distract from the match. I did like that Phil with beIN mention several times that you are able to turn off the noise using the SAP feature except that function does not work in FuboTV, I wish they would have used one of their Connect Channels .

    Guys, I don’t think MLS cares about European soccer at all in creating the MLS is Back tournament. They’re looking at their domestic competition — the NBA tournament, NHL, whatever baseball decides to do, etc. That context is more important to them right now — getting back on national TV before anyone else.

      I would say hate is a little too heavy. To say that people will watch the other countries games before the MLS, is hopefully not true. Do people in the U.K. watch German football? Or Italians spend time watching Spanish football. If we want to continue to build strong football in the U.S. then we need to support, OUR league!
